I'm back from the show and am officially caught up on all fronts, so here is my show report.
Myself and my assistant Larry Allen arrived on Tuesday and set up all day and night, opened the rooms up at noon on Wednesday. Room trading was very, very good to me, we were busy the entire time, no slow periods to speak of, we were open 12 hours a day and 8 hours on Saturday.

At the height of fierce fighting at Antietam 1862 Lee ordered Hood's Texas brigades into a corn-field where the Federal "Iron Brigade" were about to smash Stonewall Jackson's left flank. Vastly outnumbered the Texans charged into the field and stopped the Federal 1st Corps dead in their tracks. By the end of the slaughter the Texans had sustained 82% casualties which included 18 dead flag-bearers.
"For those of you attending the Chicago show please feel free to pop round and see some of our new Romans on display at the Treefrog, Sierra and Hobby Bunker rooms. Available in October from Gunn will be some marching Romans and some brand new Auxiliary Archers. Those of you going to the show will be able to buy these from the above dealers a little earlier than everybody else"
"This photo has been posted on the W. Britain Facebook Page . . . . . Shows two new civilian figures, two new mounted figures, and a two-figure telegraph set with Federal Officer using a pocket telegraph to send a message . . . . All are supposed to be in the fall catalog . . ."
